Hypnosis: Changing Your Mind About Weight Loss

Pain and HypnosisWe usually find a way to accomplish what we really want to do. Many of us tell ourselves losing weight is one of those things we really want to do… but it’s not.

That’s because our minds don’t think “losing weight” then naturally project a self image of ourselves as slim and trim. Instead, it takes “losing weight” and immediately equates it with hard work, boring exercises, and a starvation diet. No fun at all.

The root cause of most diet and exercise failures is just that we don’t want to do it. Instead we get urges to eat because it brings us temporary relaxation and pleasure. Our behavior patterns lead to food cravings deeply associated with certain activities or environments. Being overweight itself can be an emotional protective response.

In short, the mind has a tremendous amount of influence on our appetite and attitudes towards exercise. If we can change our internal attitudes towards eating a healthy diet and exercise we have already won half the battle against the bulge. That’s where a weight loss hypnotherapy program may help.

Approved by the American Medical Association since 1958, hypnosis has become a powerful tool in the treatment of both disease and undesirable behaviors including overeating. Clinical results have proven hypnosis can nearly double the effectiveness of weight loss programs. It also appears to lead to continued improvement.

One impressive study followed two groups participating in a weight management program. One group used hypnosis while the other did not. The hypnosis group continued to get results after two years while the non-hypnosis group showed no further results.

If you’ve struggled to lose weight – and keep it off – hypnosis may just give you the edge you’ve been looking for.
